Tweet from writer Rod Dreher:
Westboro Baptists headed to Newtown to picket funerals. If ever a time for a church bus to veer off the road & plunge into a deep ravine...

Ain't no time to hate. Let the hate specialists take care of that. From a historian writing in a British newspaper:

>it’s so offensively insane that the Westboro Baptists have even managed to alienate America’s Neo-Nazis. The Ku Klux Klan has run a counter protest again a Westboro picket of a military memorial service. That’s right. The KKK protested a protest thrown by a hate group.

And Micah (or anyone) upset about those people, I'll just share something a wise friend once said about dealing with horrible people: Would you rather deal with them or be them?

Really puts it in perspective.

They're already in hell. They're in the hell of being themselves. Or to put it in another cosmology, maybe bad people don't reincarnate as slugs or dung beetles. They reincarnate as people with the miserable hearts of the WBC and ilk. What a cold, cold life.

And Micah, that pic looks very similar to the church I grew up going to, right down to the surroundings. Wow :-(
